The documentary, 'Michael Jackson's Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson,' is scheduled to run on the Discovery Channel next month in the UK. It claims to offer new insight into the how and why of Jackson's death in June 2009. Details on the upcoming documentary are scarce, though it's clear that it won't include Jackson's actual body. According to TMZ and other sources, it will feature an "anatomically correct synthetic cadaver."
The show does plan, however, to show a doctor dissecting Jackson's "body" in every revealing step, based on information from the autopsy report and interviews with a series of people close to the pop singer.
Supporters created an online petition they hope will draw 50,000 names, though as of Monday they had reached just under 3,500. "Like any other human being on this earth, Michael Jackson is entitled to a minimum of decency and respect," the petition reads. "Over the months, media accumulate abuse and act as low as before."
